there is a small bug in para.py regarding the calculation of needed 
height. If you create paragraphs between them you will find a spacing of 
length "leading" that is to much. I think the line #142:

	 heightremaining = maxheight-leading

should be:

	 heightremaining = maxheight

for now here is a workaround:

class PmlPara(Para):

     def wrap(self, aw, ah):
         state = self.state
         if state:
             leading = state["leading"]
             leading = self.style1.leading
         w, h = Para.wrap(self, aw, ah)
         return w, h - leading

bye, dirk
